    No Bluray/DVDs for U

    Sorry guys, but on the plus side DVD players are cheap as heck and Bluray players are dropping in price faster than a desperate hooker.

    Are you planning on making the Wii U more of a home entertainment console by including Blu-ray or DVD drives, or is it going to be more like the Wii, and just be more of a pure gaming console?

    Iwata:

    Wii U does not have DVD or Blu-ray playback capabilities.

    The reason for that is that we feel that enough people already have devices that are capable of playing DVDs and Blu-ray, such that it didn't warrant the cost involved to build that functionality into the Wii U console because of the patents related to those technologies.

    I thought this was pretty much confirmed from the beginning.

    Either way I didn't expect it and I'm not bothered by it.
